The Blue and Gold Banquet is coming up this Sunday, February 8, at 6:00 p.m. at Bethany Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall (1818 Queen Anne Ave N.).
The Blue and Gold Banquet is a celebration of the foundation of the Cub Scout program. This year's banquet will feature a pasta dinner, entertainment by each of our local Boy Scout troops, a presentation about Chief Seattle Council's Friends of Scouting program, and the infamous Blue and Gold Dessert Competition.
Tomorrow at your respective den meeting is the last day to purchase tickets ($2 per person).
About the Blue and Gold Dessert Competition: Each scout brings a dessert that he made with a Blue and Gold theme. Examples of desserts from past years include desserts that are blue- and gold-colored or desserts that depict cub scout symbols, cub scout ideals or cub scout activities. The entire pack judges the desserts before consuming them. Please bring a dessert that is large enough to feed the number of people in your party.
Friends of Scouting: Friends of Scouting is a gift-giving campaign to support the scouting program that the Chief Seattle Council offers, including programs in five counties for more than 47,500 youth; camping experiences for over 10,000 youth; basic and advanced training for youth and adults; two Scout shops complete with all necessary Scouting supplies; camperships for youth who need financial assistance for camp; maintenance & operation of more than 1,400 acres of camp property. Please bring a checkbook to the banquet if you wish to join our Pack in supporting this annual campaign.

The Wolf Den is hosting this year's annual celebration and has requested the following of our scouts on the day of the banquet:
* Please arrive as close to 6:00 p.m. as possible.
* All scouts should be in uniform.
* When you arrive, we ask that you stay in the hall outside of the Fellowship Hall until you are called to come in. There will be a church service letting out at the time, so please help us to keep the commotion to a minimum.
* During the arrival period, there will be a station to drop off your dessert.
* Once dinner is ready, the doors to Fellowship Hall will be opened and everyone will be invited to find a seat. Please help us to make this entry go smoothly and quietly.
* Please refrain from passing food and drinks until after the opening ceremony. There will be food on the tables when you enter, but it is important that it not be a distraction until the formal food service begins after the Opening Ceremony.
* Please remind others of these requests.
Yours in Scouting,
QA Pack Committee & the Wolf Den
